Elections: No Manual Accreditation For Media- INEC Warns Media Organisations

The Independent National Electoral Commission INEC has reminded journalists and media organizations that there will be no manual accreditation or alternative to the online accreditation.

The INEC Public Relations Officer in Enugu State, Victor Okafor, made the call while speaking with newsmen.

Okafor, however, appealed to media organizations/houses and journalists to do the needful on time to avoid last minute rush.

Okafor expressed dismay that till date, no media houses or individual journalists in Enugu State had been able to fill the online media accreditation form notwithstanding the publicity he personally made on it.

The online portal opened on Thursday, January 5th; and it would be shut down at 5pm, Sunday, February 5th nationwide.
